  • a poem of praise to a sunflower i grew last summer.

    Andean sisters,
    mighty virgins of the Maya,
    I kneel before you.

    Pride of the Sky,
    contemplation of the Earth,
    a signature sashed around your girth.

    Standing tall to greet the Sun,
    your great leaves dream,
    him to sleep by nightfall.

    I have been
    for you to open,
    your huge dark eye.

    And when you do...

    awakening to reveal,
    a wonder.
